Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.


Oh no maybe you used different adaptor some adaptor have reverse polarity. check the adaptor before plugging it..if you using variable voltage set to 3v then adjust also the polarity. the polarity should match the polarity of your camera. ... Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera

My cannon A570 was working fine. Then all of a sudden it would turn on and turn off right away so I changed the batteries. This did not help. The lens was opening very slowly. Then it wouldn't open again. I received a change battery message which was odd but changed the batteries again. (they were pretty hot) Once I changed them it worked again for a second but now it wont turn on. Any suggestions?

I've owned my Sony DSC-T100 for a couple of years now. I really have enjoyed the camera but off and on it starts to vibrate, it has a humming sound as well. the pictures comes out fuzzy and blurred. Doesn't do this all the time but seems to get worse over the course of time when I use it more frequently. used to get better after I would take one picture, then it would settle down and do one ok shot, the next one vibrates, next one ok. Right now no vibration. What is going on?

I got Canon EOS Kiss 450D (Japan). Recently, the problem i encountered is ERR 99. I have read an article that it might be with the body lense "connection" and some might arise from battery problem. Also, im wondring whenever I charge the battery, after only 20 minutes the charger would blink red and green. Unlike before that when its already full charge it would only change from red to green. So i was thinking the ERR 99 might also be due to the battery. Is this really normal for the charger? Is

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

Zoom Error Hi all, New to site and hope you can help me! I have a Fuji S3000 that has worked very well for last couple of years and all of sudden has packed up, coming up with "zoom error" when you turn it on.

Maintaining Date/Time I've recently inherited a Fuji E510 camera. Works well enough except that it loses its date/time settings if I take the batteries out for even the shortest period of time (for example, when changing low batteries). I see no reference in the manual for the location of the "keepalive" battery cell nor can I find anyplace on the camera housing that indicates where a keepalive cell would be inserted. This leads me to believe that this camera model either has an incredibly st
